And in one moment,
it was gone…
It wasn’t even the loss of something tangible. It was the loss of something you never even had. A dream. A thought. A hope. All suddenly dashed when reality hit.
We spend so much time these days constructing alternative realities in our minds. We dwell on them. We get lost in them. A part of us even fails to realize that they aren’t actually true. It’s like that lie that you tell so often you start to believe it. We believe in these figments of imagination that we built in our head.
So what happens when we are faced with the truth…that this doesn’t exist? We falter. We struggle. Too much time and emotion has been invested into this false concept. It hits us hard. And for too many of us, getting back up is almost impossible.
Even those desires we keep hidden… something inside us secretly hopes it could come true. But, then the bubble is popped, and we see that there is no place where that dream could exist. Our circumstances just don’t allow for it. And in that moment, we are utterly heartbroken. Our only hope is that, eventually, we will find someone who can put the pieces back together. Someone who’ll remind us that actual events are better than anything we ever imagined could happen. Something better than the dream.
